1970 Plymouth Barracuda AAR
STK 2125 1970 AAR Plymouth Cuda The current owner of this â€˜Jâ€™ Code 1970 AAR â€˜Cuda has had it in his collection for the past 8 years. Chrysler produced the AAR model for one year only to compete on the SCAA road race circuit and challenge Fordâ€™s Mustang. AAR meant â€˜All American Racerâ€™ and there were only 2,724 ever built. The production AAR â€˜Cuda was visually altered from the regular E-body Barracuda with unique â€˜strobeâ€™ stripes that held the AAR â€˜Cudalogo and a fiberglass hood that actually took in fresh air. It also had front â€œeyebrowâ€ spoilers and a rear â€œduck tail â€œspoiler. Unlike the standard Barracuda, the AARâ€™s exhaust came out the sides near the back wheels. Under the hood, the AAR had Chryslerâ€™s Six-Pack 340ci engine that was unique to this model and the Dodge Challenger T/A. This version of the 340 differed from a production 340 in many ways including a 3x2 Holley carb set-up, thicker main bearings webs and a set of new 360 â€˜J-Headsâ€™ with 2.02/1.60 valves. In a way, it was a kind-of a â€˜small-block hemiâ€™ â€“ it could really breathe. This motor was factory rated at 290hp. However, the de-stroked 305ci track version put out 440hp, which leads one to believe that the factory rating may have been a bit conservative. Beyond that, our â€˜Cuda has a set of full-tube headers with collectors to add just a little more punch. Power is delivered to a 3.55:1 posi-traction differential by a bulletproof Chrysler 727 3-speed Torqueflite. From an appearance standpoint, the Lemon Twist Yellow exterior and custom black cloth/vinyl interior are in very good condition. Add the stripes, the spoilers and the matte black hood and this AAR is nothing short of stunning. BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires are mounted on original equipment Mopar Rally wheels. Other upgrades include: power disc/drum brakes, tinted windows, AM radio and Rally-Pak instrumentation. The AAR â€˜Cuda is a piece of MOPAR history - a testament to Chrysler performance. It will just continue to appreciate. ALL VEHICLES SOLD â€œAS ISâ€.
